digitalmars.D - Mac OS X Installation

I have successfully installed D 2.0 on a number of Macs. However, the  
latest attempt yields the following error when I try to compile any  
file:

object.d: Error: module object is in file 'object.d' which cannot be read
import path[0] = /etc/../../src/phobos
import path[1] = /etc/../../src/druntime/import

As usual, I faithfully followed the instructions at

http://www.digitalmars.com/d/2.0/dmd-osx.html

Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

Hi, Chuck! Looks like the files aren't where they are supposed to be. Try this: head /etc/../../src/druntime/import/object.di Normally you should see the first ten lines of that file. If there's an error, write back what the error message is. Andrei

Isn't /etc/../.. the root directory? That seems like an awfully incorrect place to the put the includes. I installed the druntime and phobos folders into /usr/local/include and then edited my /etc/dmd.conf accordingly. It seems to work pretty well, though it does require some setup.

No, "/etc/../" is root. "/etc/../../" is "/.." (ie parent of root), which is nonsensical. ------------------------------- Not sent from an iPhone.

/etc is a soft link to /private/etc on all OS X systems I've seen. I also think /.. always refers to / on *nix, but I could be wrong there.
